5th online seminar "Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)"


Rafał Hajduk

The 5th online seminar "Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)" will be held on 22th October, 2020. During the seminar, Rafał Hajduk, Partner and head of the energy advisory team will give a lecture entitled "Corporate PPAs in the Polish legal framework".

The main objective of the event is to exchange experience of experts from Poland and abroad seeking to define barriers and the possibility of implementing PPAs on the Polish market. Four previous editions of the seminar on PPA agreements are already behind us, bringing together over 370 specialists!

The Power Purchase Agreement is nothing more than a long-term contract for the purchase of electricity directly from the producer of energy from renewable sources. This is beneficial not only for environmental reasons (low emissions), but also for business, because it is the possibility of long-term supply of electricity at a fixed price. PPAs are increasingly popular in Europe where companies are using them to secure a fixed price for power with guaranteed environmental benefits. These voluntary agreements can also play a critical role in accelerating the growth of renewables in markets where there’s little to no subsidy provided. In Poland, renewable PPAs will aid the country in reaching its 2030 country goal of 21% renewable energy generation.

Various types of PPA contracts are possible:

  1. on-site - the producer's renewable energy installation is located directly at the recipient's installation, for example a solar installation on the roof of the factory.
  2. near site direct wire - the RES installation is located in the nearby vicinity of the recipient, and electricity is sent via a dedicated distribution line.
  3. off site - produced electricity from RES installations is sent to the recipient via the transmission / distribution line of the network operator. Off-site contracts for PPAs may occur in various variants, eg multi-seller (several RES producers sell energy to one recipient based on one contract) and multi-buyer (one energy producer sells energy on the basis of one contract concluded with several recipients).

Among the most important issues of the event:

  • Regulatory environment of PPAs
  • The scope and construction of PPAs
  • Potential beneficiaries
  • Opportunities, barriers and risks of implementing PPA in Poland
  • PPA as an alternative to the RES auction
  • European experience
  • Energy balancing under the PPA agreement
  • PPA as an opportunity for investment development of energy producers from RES
  • PPA as a certificate of creditworthiness of a renewable energy producer
